Yesterday was a holiday and the kids didn't have school. We planned on packing a picnic and going to the park, but the weather didn't cooperate. It is rainy and cold and will be the rest of this week. So we ended up running errands. NOT the older kids favorite thing to do, but they had to get done. And of course we had to make a trip to Costco for some necessities. I did get to the post office and the library as well. Then when we came home, their friends were able to play so they spent the next couple of hours enjoying a day off.
The kids are really excited for Valentine's Day and doing their school valentines. Aidan has his little playgroup party on Friday I think and he wants to do his OWN valentines. Since I was a little, my mom always made sugar cookies for every holiday I can remember and all of us kids would decorate them. I remember we would have neighbor kids over as well. She always made a huge batch and they were so yummy. I have been trying to uphold that tradition and the kids have been asking when we were going to do cookies. So, I figured I would make a batch of dough up tonight, but I can't seem to find my heart cookie cutter. Hopefully I can find it....if not, trouble right here in river city! :D It's probably hidden somewhere since the kids were using the cookie cutters for playdough the other day!
